Deadlifts in San Diego with a Small Change

Yesterday's flights went as smooth as any air travel could possibly go. The overnight from Santiago arrived in Toronto on time, and I had a chance to grab breakfast and do some work before my second flight.

Thanks to the power of time zones, I arrived in San Diego at 10:30am local time after leaving Santiago at 9pm local time.

Had about 7 hours of sleep on the flights, too.

And then after another 7 hours last night, I was off to one of my favorite gyms in the world, FIT Athletic in San Diego.

It's slowly getting bumped down the chain of gyms though, because I realized a few of its shortcomings.

First, the floor and weights are not conducive to deadlifts. The floor is too soft (matted padding), and the weights are a smaller circumference than traditional plates, adding a few inches to your deadlift ROM.

That's fine for a training effect (more emphasis on low back), but does bring your regular poundages down a few %.

Alright, enough talk.

Today's Workout:

1A) Deadlift
1B) Box Jump

2A) Front Squat
2B) RKC Plank

That was it.

Now off to breakfast with Bedros Keuilian, and then the Fit Body Boot Camp Mastermind meeting.

I might talk about this...

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Coach, Care, Connect. Correct. Solve people's problems, encourage their dreams, deliver hope, and give them a reason to believe. But hurry up. Right now people are crying themselves to sleep because you haven't helped them. Stop procrastinating. Don't hold back.

Get going,
